"Hendrix at Isle of Wight" Hits the Big Screen

"Experience Hendrix" will be teaming up with Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Murray Lerner for eight exclusive big-screen showings of the critically acclaimed film Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live At The Isle Of Wight.

Jimi Hendrix's performance at the Isle Of Wight Festival of Music, filmed less than three weeks prior to the guitarist's untimely death, is a stunning visual document that captures Jimi Hendrix at the height of his powers.

The 102-minute film captures the guitarist roaring through "All Along The Watchtower", "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and a unique medley of "God Save The Queen" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". Band members Mitch Mitchell, Billy Cox and others recount the electric atmosphere at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, which also featured The Who, The Doors and Miles Davis.
